Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

While we're still waiting for this feature request to be fixed, I have another question/feature-request that is pursuant to the last:

After a question gets migrated, let's say to a site the the OP is not registered on - will he still get notifications on any answers to his question? I assume not. Now the problem is, he wasn't notified that the question moved, and now he doesn't know that he's actually getting good answers to his question on another site.

It's a shame, really... waste of good answers there.

So the feature request (assuming the above is correct). Either:

  • Fix the previous FQ
  • Notify the user from the original site, on answers to his question on the target site (I assume there is still some correlation between users there?)

I like the second bullet; it seems like it should be possible to show alerts in the user's inbox, even if they've never been to the target site – Michael Mrozek Jan 2 '11 at 2:00
